Default No Amarillo, Cascade, Simcoe IPA Contest Anyone

I have had numerous IPAs with the 3 majors hops and would like to see if anyone else would like to see about doing an IPA contest to make an IPA without Amarillo, Cascade, & Simcoe. Just thinking it is a good chance for some of us (like myself) to branch out and try some new hops and techniques. So if anyone would like to see if we can do this just extend the thread and le's get a good idea for a HomeBrewTalk contest..

Cheers

Just a footnote this would exclude falconers flight blend as well. As we would exclude all 3 of the hops mentioned.

You forgot to exclude Citra.

Amarillo, Simcoe, Citra would be the three most popular and overused.

I think he is trying to see if you CAN make a good ipa without the popular hop varieties.

I like a challenge, I'm game. Probably should add Motueka and Nelson to the exclusion list as well.
